Grandma Engwalls Oatmeal Raisin Cookies :
Oven : 325 degrees
Baking Time: 10 - 12 minutes ( I use the full 12 minutes )
Beat Together :
1 1/4 C. White Sugar
1/2 C. Crisco
1/2 C. Brer Rabbit Molasses ( I ONLY use Brer Rabbit)
2 Eggs ( Room temp .)
Sift Together :
1 3/4 C. Sifted Flour
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 tsp. Cinnamon
Stir in 2 C. Rolled Oats ( Regular..not quick cooking kind)
1 1/2 C. Raisins ( I use dark)
Mix all together. It will be a stiff dough so at this point use a wooden spoon to mix...trust me .
Drop by teaspoon full and bake 10 - 12 minutes.
NOTE : I always make a test cookie and use parchment paper. With my oven I need the full 12 minutes.
I grew up with this cookie and it never fails to make me super happy. SU took some to work and all he said was there was a complaint...." You didn't bring enough of them ."
Happy baking !
